I have a 1995 Toyota Corolla with 200,000+ miles. One day on my way home from work, I started getting a knocking noise with a vibration from my front end. It feels like it is coming from the axle, but I can't be sure it isn't coming from the engine.
When accelerating from a stop, the vibration and knocking noise are very prominent, and the knocking seems to coincide with the revolution of my tires. As I accelerate, the noise gets faster. Once I reach about 35 MPH, the knocking seems to even out, and is less noticeable.
I need to know where I should start looking. Could this be an engine problem, or a drive train problem?
As a woman, I've learned that if I take my car in without having an idea of what is wrong, it tends to cost me more because the mechanics think that I don't know any better and can get away with it.
PLEASE help! I'm desperate!
have the same problem?
